Today in Sunday School

Our lesson today was from John 15:16 (NRSV) Jesus said, “You did not choose me but I chose you.”  These were “Jesus’ welcoming words about choosing his team of disciples” (Upper Room, 12/15/10).  Often in life, we can find ourselves the last chosen, or not chosen at all.  Certainly now, with high unemployment, too many job seekers encounter the discouraging feeling of rejection.  Rejection is a tough thing to handle.  But Jesus holds out an invitation to be a member of his team.  As stated in the Thought for the Day, “God chooses each of us—first!”  In this most important of all teams—the team giving each of us a meaningful and purposeful life, all are extended a special invitation to serve:  “You did not choose me but I chose you.”  Each one has an invitation to serve Jesus: "Only one life, 'twill soon be past; only what's done for Christ will last."
